Typical Team Metal Meeting

Image
Satish, Ali, Lateef, Ambassador, Dhruv, Jay - Awake

Guni, Upsie, Kalpana, Spri - Stuck in the wrong place, cannot sleep

Neidhi, Rahul Raj, Smruthi, Mehak - Oh god now!

Pragi, Mahima, Arun - Who cares. Can't we just get done with this?!

I love to type so softly during meetings. I'm right now hiding behind Spriha's chair and sitting on the floor. Anirban is drawing something and just got done with a limerick. Mahima is playing with her hair. Arun left the room. And I'm typing this!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D

Cannot stop typing.. Nakul came up with something funny. 5 started laughing and the rest followed. Lol! It is so funny to watch Mahima wake up and look around! LOL!

This is crazy. Mahima is gonna sleep. Prajakta has aligned herself so Satish wont see Mahima. Snoooozzzz!!

This meeting seems to be never ending. We've now moved from the actual room we were in and occupied another room. Now most have chosen places to hide n type like me. hehe! So many look tired and sleepy. Most …

Louis CK!

What's not to believe! This guy is hilarious!

SHIFTED n HAPPY!

I'm done. I'm not doing this once more. I'm gonna stick to this one and if there is a problem - I'm packing just once - to go home.

This house is cute compact and cozy! I love the way I can lie on the sofa once I reach home and just watch TV without having to adjust a cushion behind my back like the previous house. I like the way the maid just walks in knowing where her stuff is and starts cleaning and washing. I like the way the watchman is just more then OK to help us at ANYTIME. I like the way the cab comes only at 8:15 a.m. every morning (makes me wanna curl in my sheets even at 7:15) I like the way familiar faces are always there for a warm smile. I'm scared of that bully Mahima though (serial kisser!). Lol!

I hope I'm safe. I hope I don't have to do this all over once again. I hope things just go so well and I find a room mate soon. I hope things never churn green here.

I do not like the noisy people and the crying kittens. I do not like the wake up c…

A happy end!

Mehak all of a sudden asked me if I wanted to put Mehendi - and Yes, i did! We went to Shilparamam for a crazy 300 bucks (both of us!) and got this done! :D


Somehow my hands smell very eeeuuuwww after I got this done.. meaning weird smell! BUT who cares - some lotion and it goes... I love the dark red that it's become! :D

I did this cause it was my sisters 'Almost Engagement' yesterday! Congratsss Laal akkkaa!! Love you and wishing you only happiness in life! :D

P.S : Don't stay in the US forever. :D

Looking for a roomie.

And now i have to share my room. If anybody but me is even reading this - help me find a roomie.

Shifting again.

#%^&()_)((&$@(%#@#$%^&^

Anymore bad words? Please use all the fowl language instead of me saying them. Damn. Perverted landlords in Hyd. I'm so sick of men. Seriously. That much of anger!! I hate these people!

Well.. breathe in breathe out!! PHoooff!

I'm shifting houses again. Why? 1) My landlord is a horny pervert. 2) Rent is too high for my pay. Why not before? 1) Had no time 2) No money either (And am one of those who cannot take money from parents)

I'm so pissed. I've logged into Gtalk and I cannot see Budhu. No Hari. Padhu is not 'On His Blackberry' UURRRGHHH!!

What's with men? Seriously? A hint of a (^@*@ and why do they have a to become so disgusting?! Men - URRGGGHH!!

Why r there 2 sides to a coin?!!? Can't there just be one?! Why is it that exactly the day after my landlord behaves stupid - the HR person from office becomes so sweet and helps in every possible way? Thank god for the HR person - my opinion of men changed.

Competition~

Know what I call competition?! Something that makes audience's blood pressure rise!

Well, I'm audience today.

The participants are 'Saamiyey Saranam Ayyappa' and 'Jesus, I love you.'

Hail all noisy temple functions and noisy gatherings! It happens ONLY in India!

Money and friends!

Naveen and I fell into this weird conversation of borrowing money from friends. Somehow I have never borrowed money from him, Hari and Padhu ever. I dunno why and I cannot ask them for money either. Why? - I dunno don't ask. With friends, there are a few you can ask anything under the sun and some you limit urself from. My comfort level with most of my friends is great but moneywise I can ask only Shilpa. Cause we both are friends who have been through all that it needs to screw up a relationship and still remained and patched up things to be great forever! Maybe its the fear factor that a little money can make the relationship ugly.

I just asked myself a few questions :

Who is the first person you will think of when u r in dire need of money? - Shilpa

Who is the last person on your mind? - Naveen

What's the highest amount you have ever borrowed : Two thousand bucks

Longest period you haven't returned the cash - One month

Ever felt so broke that you have starved yourself a mea…

An honest joke from a long lost friend...

I live in a place where a pear is seen and eaten as a pear, but when its discussed about in public "Its the fruit that I first tasted in America when I stayed @ the Hilton for the release of our new order for Puma. We forfeited our order with Nike as it was getting boring." Phew! All for a pear!

After a very long time a long lost friend who I thought was one of this kind pinged me online. I was not too sure if I wanted to reply. His first ping was "Where are you?" People have seriously stopped saying HI. I said "Home but hi." He said he was in Tirupur and was utterly bored. I don't blame the guy. After 4 years in Scotland and 1 year in London even Banglore would be boring to him. He was in a reunion dinner with a few friends from our school. The kind.

I mentioned how rude it was to be chatting with someone when u r at a dinner party. He said like.."yeah whatever."

For a minute the man got me in splits! Poor thing. What did he do but go away fr…

Simbu and the Simbu tribe! haha!

Image
I happened to search for one song I heard recently which was sung by Silambarasan - a self-proclaimed A1 grade actor. He is called Simbu for short and Google pulled up 2 kinds of similar searches!









Well, now I agree with Simbu!





And also, Google!

Am I approachable?

I took this quiz on www.blogthings.com and this was my result :

"You can talk to anyone, and it shows. People are eager to start conversations with you. You are open and friendly. You are willing to connect with almost anyone.

While it's great to be approachable, there is such a thing as too approachable.
Eventually someone will try to take advantage of you. Don't be afraid to say no or end an awkward conversation. "

Pornogrpahy in India

@ lunch once one of my colleagues asked me this question, "Do you think porn should be made legal in India?" Immediately my mind got a million images of protests, students, policemen, rich kids, Shiv Sena, women etc. I don't know if I was imagining all this for a Yes, it should be allowed.. or for a No, shouldn't. I was not sure what my opinion was. One of the others at the table said Yes. My thoughts were more on what would happen if it was allowed legally. I was imagining children who would lose fright and kill their guilt and access porn sites. I was still not sure what I was thinking about.

The one who said yes spoke up. He said "People anyway view porn sites and access every single thing on the web. There's youtube which vividly gives u videos with very very minute censoring. There are sites that you can open and just download videos. There are movies in Indian theaters you can go to to get the paid version. What's the issue having it legally online…

The only time I'm angry with Subway!

This is probably the only time I will say I'm actually ANGRY with SUBWAY! I had ordered my Meatball sub about 1.5 hours back and it hasn't come as yet. Yes, 1.5 hours. AARRGH! I'm dying of hunger! SUBWAY hunger!

OK hold on.. door bell.

... yeah, it was SUBWAY. But I sent the guy back. I know I didn't do the right thing for myself and my tummy (poor tummy) but I'm sure this is gonna be a good incident to teach delivery people their core job! This not being the first time BTW. Last Friday Jeanette and I ordered ourselves lavish dinner with cookies from here. We paid the guy and bit into our subs. All done. Now it was cookie time. For Jeanette it was first time - the cookie ordering thing. But I always did. They r little pieces of heaven! The cookies we got were SOOOO hard! I was completely shocked so I immediately called SUBWAY and informed them and also made myself sound stern enough so they would not do it to other customers as well. When I made my order today mad…

Ortist madness @ work!

On my ears now...

Lately I've been listening only to one song while I work. A song from Vaaranam Ayiram (a Surya starrer) :D - Mundhinam Paartheney...

I love the lyrics
"Thula thottil unnai vaithu nigar seyya ponnai vaithai.. thula baaram thorkadho peralagey"

SO in love with this song! My VLC Crashed after 3 days!! I'm still listening to it! :P

PETA.

Are you veg or non-veg?! I usually proudly say - Pure Non Veg. Yeah, I eat meat.

I watched THE most disturbing video ever today on www.peta.com. The video made me cry for a while. How humans can be so brutal and heartless! (Well, who am I to talk - Pure non-veg!)

http://www.petatv.com/tvpopup/video.asp?video=iowa_sow_farm_investigation_9-08_web_edit_peta&Player=wm

Totally disturbed. Maybe I should consider becoming a vegetarian.

Another Saturday night with nothing to do!

Yes, I'm still complaining! Not tonight though... Today turned out to be great.. nah... greater than all the other boring weekends in Hyd!

What I did : nothing. Hee :D What I actually did the whole day : Woke, got the maid to do all the cleaning, called for lunch, watched FRIENDS, and lazed the afternoon to evening and then night. Me being me. Alone, bored, but happy. Hee :D

Last night turned out to be such a memorable night. I laughed and laughed with a few friends over a conference call about my dream. I told the friend of mine about my dream. We laughed it out like crazy and this conference call can keep me going for weeks. we chatted and chatted. The boys were making plans to go to Dubai. This was when I was sad. I cannot go with them cause I'm the only girl. The guys even gave me ideas of how I can convince my dad and just go to Dubai. It was very sweet of them. But I'm dead sure dad's not gonna let me... and that's beca…

@ work and guys!

This has been in my head for over a year now. Men @ work : URGH! After having lived in a residential school where boys are fed chivalry and manners, the guys in my office turn out to be men with nothing. They yawn without closing their mouths : gosh, I don't wanna count your cavity and fillings nor do I wanna breathe around there for the next one minute. They chew with their mouths open, alk with food in their mouth : euuw. Like Phoebe says in FRIENDS : I asked for news, not the weather! Seriosly!

With everyone who has a personal side of themselves, a secretive side. Shush side of everyone. I dunno why it bothers me so much when guys @ work download and watch porn in office. I mean, how desperate can u be?! In office?! Do what you want, use a privacy screen for gods sake.

I'm someone who cannot take foul language. Never. The F word when unnecessary can piss me off. Language in office can get disgusting, so disgusting I can slap someone. Urgh! Wish I could. Learn …

Wish my dream comes true...

I had the weirdest of dreams 2 days back. I hear early morning dreams come true, I soo wish this does. Its one of the things that I've been thinking about over and over again. What happens once a girl gets married? Loses all the touch with her friends... all go their way. I so don't want anything of that sort to happen to me. I would feel soo guilty on my death bed! My friends so deserve me!

Well the dream went this way... Cindy a friend of mine (I can tell her about anything under the sun!) Yea that meant, most of my girl talk! I dream that Cindy and I go shopping in Coimbatore. We 2 friends are married to 2 friends and we get to be together forever and forever. That means we can discuss just about anything at any point of time in life.

I had the best laugh with her when I told her this. We laughed over it on conference and everything but when I ended up I was flooded with emotions === pray my dream should come true.

A girl should always have her Besst pal! The one who can be th…

A shop that sold bags in Shilparaman. Literally, THE most colorful shop there.




P.S : I just realised why these days my sentences finish with a full stop. there used to be days when I had a ! after every sentence. Maybe after a whole year of living with literally with a comp you tend to lose the happiness in saying something.

The thing called boredom.

I understood why weekends were such a bore for me. Its been more than a year now and I still haven't found the person called Friend in Hyd. Or maybe I'm just very blessed with thoughts of my friends from high school and college that I cannot accept anybody. I don't accept anybody and then I complain.

Ques : How do you like hyd?
Ans : Hyd's boring.

My answer hasn't changed for a year and more now. It's just in my head that Hyd is boring, there are not enough places to go and eat, its not safe and finally Who will I go with? There are just two options. I think of Rashi and Jeanette. Both my ex-roommate and present roommate. The other times I go, I go alone. Somehow I'm in luv with shopping alone for myself. No second opinions, no interepted opinions.

I'm right now sick and tired of Rajdhani which gives the best overpriced Rajasthani food. Jeannette and I end up there when we wake late of weekends and are too lazy to cook. I'm also sick of pizza. Every ot…

Beautiful quotes...

After all this time
I never thought we'd be here
Never thought we'd be here
When my love for you was blind
But I couldn't make you see it
Couldn't make you see it
That I loved you more than you'll ever know
A part of me died when I let you go.

When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

It's the dream, afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul, afraid of dying
That never learns to live

You're as welcome as cancer, but my door is always unlocked

My thoughts are free to go anywhere, but it's surprising how often they head in your direction.

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

The most beautiful view is the one I share with you.

Where words fail, music speaks...

Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.

The arrogance of the artist is a very profound thing, and it fortifies you.

Why Weekends!?

What has Pragi been doing durign weekends? 
How was your weekend? 
Howz your new house? 

Well well well... Seriosly BLAH! 
Just when I thought I'm done... When I decide I have my space... Privacy and all... ...my landlord brings home carpenters to fix cupboards (I had shelves as you can see)
That screws a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, SATURDAY, SUNDAY, then comes a Monday when they ask me to extend my frustration & patience till Tuesday! All these days include me staying in the hall and keeping things in J's room.
Well... I did! And I got this lovely room with cupboards without which I was living paying 5000 bucks till now.. Now i feel its worth 4000 bucks! 

Just when I think.. YAY I'm done!.. my ladnlord appears with painters to paint the plywood inside the cupboards! AArrggh! 
There goes another Saturday morning's sleep and When they knocked my door for Sunday's work... I was furious! So here I'm in office blogging this frustration while painters in my room might hon…

Selflessness..

When you held her hand the first time.. she dropped a tear.

When you smiled in ur sleep.. she was there.

When you took your first step.. she felt the pride.

When you fell ill.. she stayed up and prayed.

She thought of you every time the school bell rang.

When she was alone.. she embroided your hankies.

She told you stories to put you to sleep.

She watched you play and run and walk.

She smiled when ppl praised you.

She woke before you to get u set to school.

She.... will come back

The red umbrella~

Be mine~

It was just the 2 words that made the difference..

No hug or kiss could have meant that much..

No poem or card could have made the tear drop..

No sugar words could have silenced the lip..

Just enough.. that was just enough..

To hold him close and never want that moment to end..


The eyelids fell.. the skies did too.. and among those who held the black.. his hand opened out her red umbrella..

Feeling blah.

Image
Never ever has a Friday evening been so BLAH before. I've got my bonus, I've got my salary, I'm literally rich today and yet I don't feel like getting my butt off this lousy chair to go back home or do something else.

Maybe its just the feeling of the first weekend after getting back to work from home. Last weekend was energetic and noisy at my relatives. I was poor then. 516 bucks poor.

Argh! Maybe this is the feeling of having everything and yet nothing!

The new sensation in my life...

This is the new sensation in my life!

What?! A ship sinking? War? Destruction!? NOO - Battleship!

The sexiest game to make you feel how lucky you are...

There are no strategies in this game and this game is pure sheer luck!



I remember playing this game for the first time in Nazareth. Every Sunday we took turns to says HIT, MISS! I looovve this game!


For a long time now I hadn't played this game till I discovered it on Skype! Naveen and I started playing this game and I felt like a winner even though he is far off in China and me in India. Same with Hari in Mumbai, Chellam in B'lore!!

This game makes me feel like I'm queen of the world! (Only wish you earnt money with every game u win!) I would have all theirs! hehe! (U guys are the best!)

There is still a week to go... to be home after 6 months... to see all my school friends in life's first ever Alumni meet... to take pictures of the places we all had the best time... Also, to go to KKD for my best friends wedding! The very first wedding among all of us! 

So excited ever since i booked my tickets... I'm so glad I put up with myself for these excited days! When i come back work is gonna suck big time, im gonna be so homesick, so lost without the best of people around me... so bored with none to bug knowing they wont mind! But I'm gonna go and be back... be back! Aah! Yup..! 
Can't wait to go see the bride in all blushes (or shud we teach her to) dressed and still squeaky!!

Why I luuuvveee Orkut!

Dunno what to do!?

Really bugged!?

Guess what I do when am done with work - Orkut!

I don't scrap people.
I don't refresh to see who is online. I get cheaper! ;)

I browse through profiles, random stuff, specially albums!

What random shit people post!! An album with 800 pictures after Orkut increased the photo limit! Ha! I wasn't that jobless to go through 800 pictures of football players, not even the profile owners!

1093 communities!! Man, how many diff likes and dislikes can one have?! Answer : Many! But just a 100 communities dedicated to football!?!? How crazy is that!!

Is it not enough you become a part of your fav filmstar's community!? Do u actually have to be a part of every damn movie he has acted?! Well, all do that!

When you realise...

Has there been this time in life when you feel that things have changed and the world seems to take it well?! I felt like that a few days back... not for the first time but recently...

3 of my best friends are to be wedded and are right now : Engaged! We were the lucky bunch who lived together in hostel. It was a cute family who at the end of the day had all the time to sit up and discuss about each ones H.O.D, teacher, warden, class mates, popular girls in college and blah blah.

There was never a time we actually spoke of those few years after college that would change all our lives. We were the world to each other in that hostel and being away form hostel surely meant coming back for most of us. It hit us that things will change when a few did leave hostel and never came back, but to visit. Personally, it hit me hard when I had to leave and when I for sure knew I would not come back when most of my other friends were gonna be in the same city. I knew I was leaving b…

City of Life - Hong Kong

Image
With all that Buddha explanation about in my previous post, I decided to bring back those memories of Hong Kong myself!

This trip was totally unexpected. I was in school when mom called and said daddy is going to HK for a fair this summer. With something on my mind, I said i wanna go too! Then Sai was pulled into the plan and it was finalized! It was the three of us and mom was planning to walk it to Palani.

All excitement and happiness in school!! All things were packed and we reached Chennai by train and stayed the night over @ some random hotel. The flight was late that night and we were @ the airport! Sai and I were going abroad after a verrrry long time! The flight was to Singapore and a transit from there - 8 hours!

The Singapore airport is the most beautiful man made thing after the Taj Mahal I would say. The various shops, the colors, the people, the orchids and every damn thing was welcoming in that place! Starbuckssss - - Ooooh!! Dad got us black coffee and I enjoyed every bit …

When I fell in love with Hyderabad, the moment I lost it!

That was the glimpse i got of the Buddha statue in Hussain Sagar lake. I always wondered why people went there - 1) the place stinks like 2 tons of bleaching powder has been mixed with 10 tons of rotten fruits 2) its just a statue 3) its not even worth 60 bucks to go by that boat - you get to see buddha's butt for like half and hour, and another half you're trying to figure out what is so special about his front that people actually get off these boats to take pictures right by his feet - WHATEVER!

Pranav and I started off with this boat ride on the first available boat. 60 damn bucks for the ticket per head. This particular boat has entertainment but did not give the privilege to get off the boast and take pics near HIM! we dint care - we just wanted to go!

I was holding my digi cam after a long long time and it was sunset time! I kept clicking and clicking and the memory card was full! The stench form the waters were killing me... the loud noise from the music that was played …

Guess who has just been arrested for the worst crime in the world.....

4 full days and no time

It was April finally and THE (only) convocation in my life was on a Tuesday - A day which is after a weekend and almost middle of a working week. I did not want to go with all the changes my college was making with its dates. I informed home that I would not be going when my mom said she wanted a snap of me with my 'degree'! That's all I could give her after 3 years of college and all the EDUCATION! ;) I decided to go... i scrapped 5 days of work and decided to make it to Chennai. With a lot of alteration to my tickets, I was done - I was flying to Chennai, 4 days there and then would go back home by train.

It was Friday and I could not wait... I reached the DAMN Shamshabad airport and boarded. I was looking forward to stay with Monu in her house. This is the first time I was seeing her after she got married. The flight towards Chennai was gone in a wink and I took a taxi towards Sowcarpet - that's where Monu lived! All my luggage (1 bag) was loaded and the car sped off…

Does it take a long time to digest all this eaten at the same time?! Its the same digestion process anyways. Why does it take so much time for people to learn to adjust when you are from different roots to live in one place?! Ego? Color? Race? Dressing sense? Expenditure limits? Choice of words?

Status - My definition

There is this group of people I know in Tirupur who do some things. Read on

---- Buy the costliest clothes only for the Brand
---- Purposely leave the price tag on it the first time, just so that someone sees it and go WHOA!
---- Swing these clothes around when they go "hahahaha" for the not at all funny jokes
---- Fold these clothes and never spend on their dry cleaning ;)
---- Repeat these clothes for a 'family function' after a 'social get together'
---- Talk no end of these clothes when asked
---- Think they can just carry off these clothes

---- Donate 1 crore just so that their name comes on the paper
---- Add in their column in the paper "We wanted to make an Anonymous donation, but the trust wanted to publish this. This was not necessary"
---- Poise for these pictures near the poshest hotels for making a donation

---- Wear plastic smiles wherever they go
---- Host a party once a while just to remind their friends "we're here"

---- Hire nanni…

My lil' brother and Orkut!~

Been a while since I blogged. Didn't bother to even open my pages. I had a very busy month which was very fast by the way, until today. The company had given a Good Friday holiday and the two S days of the week follow. I signed up for weekend work as I desperately needed the compensation leave for my long weekend in Chennai. I was browsing through all possible sites for more information Sweeney Todd along with a friend. While doing so, we decided we would surf through his orkut profile for a while.

Orkut!~

We looked through all his pictures of graduation and turtle walk etc, when we came across one of his friends who had a few pictures. With a little tinge of joblessness we opened the pictures and looked through them. The guy had 8 pictures of himself in various posses in his room all in same clothes. we burs…

Yet Another MUST AWAITED weekend~~

It was not even on my mind that daddy would say yes to what I was going to ask. I wanted to go to Chennai for my birthday, to meet my friends and spend the weekend over with them! I was bored in Hyderabad and every weekend here meant watching TV alone and reading books on my bed. I was just not ready to spend my birthday that way here. I decided with all guts to call my dad and ask him. Called mummy first and the answer was 'ask daddy.' I called dad and he said 'ask mummy.' Finally, he said yes! :) :) :) That's when I stopped working for the week!!!

The bus ride to Chennai was miserable... my legs hurt so badly and the bus was late by two hours!! Somehow, I managed to sit through the whole thing with a lot of excitement! I reached and surprised everyone! It was a great weekend! :) :)

A smile...

I had once had a long personal chat with a friend who was not so close/not so far kinds. It was just a moral support chat for both of us and it ended in a very nice "Thank for being there" kinds. The next day he sent me a mail with this poem in it. Here goes,

I have a list of folks I know
all written in a book,
And every now and then
I go and take a look.

That is when I realize
these names they are a part,
not of the book they're written in,
but taken from the heart.

For each Name stands for someone
who has crossed my path sometime,
and in that meeting they have become
the reason and the rhyme.

Although it sounds fantastic
for me to make this claim,
I really am composed
of each remembered name.

Although you're not aware
of any special link,
just knowing you, has shaped my life
more than you could think.

So please don't think my greeting
as just a mere routine,
your name was not
forgotten in between.

For when I send a greeting
that is addressed to you,
it is because you're on the list
of…

A conversation...

A conversation...I was heading home for a much awaited weekend. It was a tiring drive to the airport after work and I needed some rest. I waited impatiently to board with a heavy bag in hand. Once I did, I looked for THE seat near the emergency exit for more leg space. This happens in all domestic flights but Paramount (Travel Business Class baby!) This Spicejet was traveling from Delhi to Coimbatore via Hyderabad. IN these flights its very tough to get a good seat cause the Delhiites take the good ones. To my surprise 2 seats near the emergency exit were free and both were to the window’s side! Lucky me! ;) I quickly found my way to that place and arranged my hand luggage in the compartments above. The isle seat was occupied by an old man (around 60… at least!) who looked a little like Vijay Mallya. He stood up and made way for me to walk in. He was one of those traveling from Delhi… one of those who had the choice of getting the better seats before I could... hmpf! I sat down and in…
